About the property

Luxury Villa - Heated Residents Pool ( 900 steps away ) & Private Beach access

A unique opportunity to rent a quality property in a Waterfront Community with all the comforts of home plus 1 minute drive or short walk for access to a heated community pool, private tennis courts and a quiet relaxing restful time. Lots of sun loungers and tables & chairs together with a covered picnic area which overlooks the water Channel to the Gulf of Mexico.

We have a large Lanai for evening meals or quiet tranquil resting - attached to a large right angle get which gets the sun all day


Toilets and showers are newly renovated and as the pool is non-commercal being exclusively for Residents & Guests.

It is normally peaceful and tranquil most times and is located right on the Gulf of Mexico at the end of a long water channel on the other side to our home on Dewey Drive.

The Private beach is at the other side of the Gulf Channel along Floramar Terrace (5 minute drive ) which runs parallel to Dewey Drive where our home is


Our home has large Cathedral ceilings featuring in built sparkle which catches your eye as you sit and relax on our seven piece Italian leather furniture.

The central lounge leads out onto our large sundeck via two patio doors at the side of the fireplace and the deck gets the Sun all day as it moves around our home to often finish with a beautiful Sunset over our inclusive Private Beach.

Residents Pool access is only one third of a mile away and is right on the Gulf water channel out into the Gulf of Mexico and having walked the route I can tell you it is about 900 steps

This is an ideal spot to sit and relax in a nice area with showers and toilets and lots of sun loungers for all with access by electronic key fob which we provide

A non-commercial facility for use by Residents and their Guests which is rarely busy and we find is particularly nice in the afternoons for a restful time before preparing dinner or going out to a local restaurant.

Also features nice private tennis courts just where you enter with the special electronic key fob which we provide as mentioned above.

Gulf Harbors Woodlands is a very nice Deed Restricted community with high standards, nice roads and lovely people who will make you welcome.

It is a cul-de-sac 369 home location so through traffic is at a

minimum for this reason with the added benefit of random

patrols by the local sheriff to which deters any bad guys ?

Green Key Beach is only a short drive away and as well as having a Sunset viewing platform, features a nature reserve with elevated boardwalk access.

Toilets, showers, nice small beach and a playground area for children in addition to covered and open picnic tables.

Peaceful and quiet and looking out over many angles this is an ideal spot to watch the often glorious sunsets or just site and read at the picnic tables

Don't forget our private beach of course where you can park

right at beachside and step onto the sand as our invited guest

If you feel energetic, rent a boat at the start of Marine Parkway

at the Marina behind the Magnuson Hotel and visit uninhabited

Anclote Island which you should be able to see on Google Earth

using New Port Richey and Zip Code 34652

Feel free to ask any questions !

About Eleonore & Terence Hart

This is us with Eleonore's Mum and we are regular Snowbird visitors to the Sunshine State where we go to enjoy the warm winter sun while we do the Annual Maintenance to make sure you enjoy your visit to our Home in the Sun.

We also have a Private Island for you to visit - Anclote Island is within easy reach by boat which you can rent from the local Marina behind the Hotel at the start of Marine Parkway and U.S Highway 19

Waters are clear warm and wonderful in Florida Summertime - Quite a lot cooler in Winter but Europeans will find invigorating.



Eleonore & Terence Hart purchased this villa in 2013

Why Eleonore & Terence Hart chose New Port Richey

Great location - quiet yet within reach of great shopping, restaurants, beaches and attractions. Best of all is sitting on the sunny deck around 5pm with cocktail in hand and enjoying dinner in the early evening sun OR enjoyaing a peaceful walk around our quiet secluded and somewhat exclusive neighborhood.

Enjoy the setting sun down at the dock beside Gulf Harbors Woodlands Residents Pool.

Only 369 homes in this lovely community and Deed Restrictions keep standards high !

Go to our quiet exclusive Private Beach as our invited guest and enjoy the most spectacular unrestricted Sunset viewing as the Sun drops into the Sea !

Try and get that or a nice sea breeze in Orlando !

Once the sun goes down we retire to the 25 x 14 foot screened lanai, light the citronella candles and enjoy the peace and quiiet.

If it is too hot, we have two powerful floor fans for you to

use or simply retire to the Air-Conditioned comfort of the

Central Lounge and switch on the 55 inch LG flatscreen with

high resolution Blu-ray DVD player.

Sink into the top quality Italian leather furniture, switch on the Remote Controlled ceiling Fan and enjoy the TV or high resolution DVD movies.

Wonderfully quiet and restful with very little passing traffic, the sun comes up in the morning outside the Lanai Bedroom and climbs into the sky passing over our L shaped Sundeck all day. We especially love the evenings around 5pm when it is just a little cooler and very relaxing before dinner as you sip your wine and relax. Very little passing traffic on our large corner lot facing the setting Sun - so peaceful and tranquil Go for a walk along the waters edge of the Gulf Channel or head down to the dock beside the Coastguard Station only one third of a mile away down Marine Parkway and sit and watch the boats passing out into the Gulf of Mexico

Lovely, lovely, lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and a best friend stayed most of the month of March 2017 in this great home in the quiet neighborhood where everyone waived or said good morning on our morning walks, yet it was close to everything we wanted, like stores, beaches, great places like Tarpon Springs, Safety Harbor, etc. Bonus for us, we were within several miles of best friends living in New Port Richey. The size of the home was the best for get togethers with those and other friends for a delicious shrimp boil, good conversation and lots of laughs! The home was full of all the things we needed for cooking, laundry, enjoying March Madness basketball on the large TV, not to mention the wonderful lanai and deck for sunning, lounging, reading and enjoying the great weather we had. Terry Hart and also Angela made contacts and arrangements quickly, clearly and straight forward. Thank you. We would return in a flash!

5 Star home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property in 3 years and just like the first visit we were not disappointed. The house is very clean, and beautifully kept. The large pool was a big hit with kids and adults alike with ample space to sun bathe if required. Another big plus is the free access to the private beach just a few minutes drive away. We have encountered dolphins and manatees during some of the mornings at the beach to the delight of our kids. The whole booking process from start to finish was a pleasure and although not required Angela is based just a few miles away if anything goes wrong during your stay. This is a beautiful part of the world in what is a very quiet welcoming estate with friendly neighbours. Local amenities are fantastic with various supermarkets just a few minutes away and too many delicious restaurants close at hand. The only downside is we should have stayed longer!! But we will be back for our third visit soon.

Very Clean Spacious Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay and would reccomend it to anyone. To begin with, Terry and Eleonore were very accomodating and thorough in their explanations so much so that, on arrival, there were no surprises. Everything was just as we expected. The kitchen was very well equiped, living room comfortable and spacious and of course, the lanai where we had most of our meals was super. The worst part was that the length of our stay was much too short!

Thanks Terry and Eleanore

Owner's Response: Always nice to hear that your home is appreciated..... Thanks Bill and Carol for taking good care of everything during your stay and yes we agree, the elevated Lanai and new wrap around right angle deck fit so well for dining out in the fresh air. Add in the tranquillity of our peaceful location and the Residents Pool being only one third of a mile away and this ticks a lot of boxes. If you love the gentler evening sun then the deck extension sitting area is recommended giving all day sunshine on our corner lot ! Welcome back anytime for a longer visit perhaps and maybe next time you can include a visit to the Private Beach ? Terry & Eleonore Hart - May 2016

Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

When we walked through the front door, we walked into the spacious, beautiful living room that was situated in the center of the home with the master bedroom/bath on one side and the kitchen and two guest bedrooms and a bath on the other side. The home was well equipped, and had a beautiful screened in lanai. The community pool was large and situated on a canal lined with boats; just a short walk away as described. The private beach was very nice and had several pavilions with picnic tables so you could easily spend the whole day there if you wanted. Terry Hart was so helpful and provided us with a list of restaurants, and places to sightsee, along with directions to and from his home. If there was a need to contact Terry, he was just an email away and responds promptly. We loved the neighborhood where the property was located.....just like home! The only complaint I have is that there were not a lot of attractions close by; it was at least a 45 minute or more drive to various places of interest; thus the reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5. All in all, we loved our stay and would highly recommend others to book this property.

Pa visitors to sunny Florida

  • 5 of 5

We felt this home was so warm and welcoming. We have rented several homes in the past and this one felt like home. It is well maintained, very clean with a wonderful layout for guests.

All of our visitors loved the home, it was convenient to the community pool and the short drive to the private beach was amazing for the sunsets.

It was a great community and loved the new enlarged deck and ate many meals on the lanai.

We will return next year, the owners are very friendly, we felt we have know them for years.

Lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, exactly how it was described on the Internet. Well-kept and clean with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your stay. Loved the lanai and if there had been a shade on the east-facing side to block some of the hot sun, we probably would've spent the majority of our time out there. As it was, with the heat, we tended to stay inside during the day--when we weren't out enjoying ourselves--but we spent the evenings on the lanai when it cool.

Only problem was we were without an Internet connection for the first three days (not a good thing for an author who's busy promoting her book!) but the owners took care of it as quickly as they could.

Would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Mike and his family were a fairly last minute booking and Brighthouse were a bit slow with the Internet hook-up, so thanks for your patience and understanding while we got this resolved ! Glad to see you enjoyed our home and the quiet, tranquil neighborhood only a short walk from the Residents Pool & Tennis. Thanks for taking good care of Dewey and welcome back anytime Best wishes - Eleonore and Terry
